2016 Chevrolet Volt Real World Highway Range And MPG Test – Video
The 2016 Chevrolet Volt is rated as having 53 miles of all-electric range; thereafter the EPA says it achieves an approximate 42 miles per gallon (combined) on regular gas.
Now the fellows at TFL have decided to check out what that means in the “real world” on the highway.
Specifically this means driving on their standard test/100 mile highway driving loop, while travelling at 75mph. (We should note that a full 75 mph test run is more aggressive than standard EPA testing protocols)
Bold predictions before taking off? The 2016 Volt will post a big number … perhaps the biggest number tested to date by the outfit.
Editor’s Note: The testing duo continually mention that neither GM, nor the EPA has disclosed the range ratings for the 2016 Volt on the highway in all electric mode, or the MPGe/MPG of the car in extended range (gas) mode on the highway.
We took a moment to check the data files ourselves, and those numbers are available…but just not out in the open:
Hat tip to offib!
